It’s the newest car to come from Classic Recreations and […]

Earlier this year Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations announced their new flagship mode, the Shelby GT500CR Venom. The car is a step up in terms of performance compared to the base GT500CR model featuring a 427ci V8 paired to a ProCharger F1-R centrifugal supercharger good for an incredible 780 horsepower as well as larger brakes, an upgraded suspension and wider wheels and tires.
